Just a suggestion that this could make a nice wiki article: how to minimize boot times.  Running a stock console image here I was estimating my boot was 40-45 seconds.  Some of that time involves network dhcp negotiations and I have wifi turned on for bench testing, so I could get it faster without too much thought on my end.  But it would be great to have a list of things that could be trimmed off with their corresponding time savings.  Something along the lines of:

If you don't use feature/driver X, then you can disable startup script or module Y (and here is how), and this will save you Z seconds on boot.

I would also like to add that out of the total 10 second boot time, 5 seconds
of that is taken by x-load and u-boot.
